Travis County Media Services, the public access channel for the fifth-largest county by population in Texas, has selected NControl Lite—an end-to-end automation solution produced by NVerzion, a provider of tools for digital broadcasting and television station automation—to control the channel’s file-based broadcast and recording operations.

“NVerzion automation is extremely versatile, allowing us to communicate reliably with every component in the broadcast workflow,” said Al Jackson, media operations manager at Travis County Media Services’ TCTV-17, a county government access channel that delivers live telecasts of commissioners' court meetings and original programming to central Texas.

As part of its move to a larger facility, the broadcaster had system integrator ZVS Media install NVerzion NControl Lite automation for its primary playback, recording, scheduling and logging operations.
NVerizon says its software and hardware package includes: “NGest dubbing and recording software application, NPoint video preparation software for segmenting and trimming, NControl router/cuts-only transmission playlists, NBase structured query language media database manager, NView database viewer, NConvert that produces an electronic as-run log format,” as well as Ethernet machine control.
NControl Lite runs on off-the-shelf hardware, which facilitates integration with routing, on-air graphics, master control switchers and other third-party equipment, NVerzion says. The customizable automation solution ingests content and schedules video playback of meetings and events, and operators can access content from a graphical user interface that can be modified as needed to meet the broadcaster’s requirements, according to the company.
